Jussie Smollett wanted to get the heck outta Chicago.
The “Empire” star landed back in Los Angeles late Wednesday night after accusing officials in Chicago of releasing “one-sided evidence” following the Cook County State’s Attorney dropping charges in his criminal case.
We’re told Smollett did not feel comfortable in Chicago after the scrutiny regarding the case, and decided to return to his home on the West Coast.
Smollett was asked a ton of questions about the case, including what he thinks about making a full recovery in his career.
There are also rumblings he may make an appearance at the NAACP Image Award show this weekend, where he’s nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role on “Empire.”
Smollett didn’t answer anything about the case, but when asked about a message to his fans, Smollett said, “My fans already know how much I love them.”
